Traveling through and chose to stop. So glad we did! Delicious Irish stew, and a wonderful location built in 1324!The service was quick and attentive. The land was tender and the broth just right. Also, Kilkenny beer is like a cream ale, and for those not imbibing the iced tea was lightly sweet... Time well spent.

Cool old pub with lots of stonework. Be sure to walk around and read the various plaques about the history of the place and the original owner, who was accused and arrested for being a witch. The food is good. Fair prices. Especially good place for a pint. Live music but crowded on weekend nights and during high tourist season.... More

The ambiance here is fantastic. Such an old building. Couple that with hot delicious food and you have a winner. We tried two of their reasonable "small bites" (flakey tart and the quiche). What was not stated was they each came with a salad, a nice bonus. We enjoyed the tasty food here. Our friends ordered the fish cakes, and... More

We arrived into Kyteler's Sunday night to find music and a great atmosphere so we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It's an Olde Worlde pub and had a more mature clientele which suited us as our mother was with us. Somebody very kindly arranged for a taxi back to the hotel for us also. While we didn't eat there on this... More

We were in here around 6pm on St Patrick's Day - so it was packed! We were lucky and managed to get a seat at the bar downstairs, and there is a big outdoor area out the back there. We probably didn't get the opportunity to soak up the historical atmosphere of the place as it was just so full... More

They offer excellent food very helpful staff and brilliant live entertainment weather your looking for quiet traditional music while eating your dinner, or a full on session to sing and dance the night away. We were in Kilkenny for two nights and ended up... More

Kyteler's Inn is a bar/restaurant. It's located in the heart of Kilkenny City. Established in 1324 it is one of the oldest medieval bars in Ireland. It has the original stone and beams. Make sure to read about Dame Alice Kyteler before going. Interesting story. Enjoy!

Thank Denise T

Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife
